pavroo:
Show me results of two commands from a terminal: 'lspci' and 'lsusb'.

Linux_Newbi:








sorry they are images, cant get online on hp yet, ethernet cable MIA

pavroo:
It's OK.

But you can use Lxterminal or MATE-terminal, depence what desktop you have (what desktop/sparky version you have?)

Don't run the system in text mode, run it as normal mode and run from menu-> accesories-> terminal, log in as root:

Code:
su
modprobe -r b43

If it does not show any problems, run:

Code:
modprobe b43

Then check your wifi networks.

Linux_Newbi:
Thanks, I'm using ultra, stupid question, I'm a ubento user, how do you log in as root in the terminal?

I am running gui, just full screen xterm to make text fit, didn't know ther was a text only mode.
